    8(1) The Florida Lottery will conduct, as a retailer sales incentive, a Retailer CASH4LIFE22® 23Bonus Commission Program (“Program”) in which the Florida Lottery will award bonus commissions to Florida Lottery retailers who sell a winning Top Prize ($1,000/Day for Life) or Second Prize ($1,000/Week for Life) ticket for a Monday or Thursday drawing.

    64(2) The bonus commission for selling a winning Top Prize CASH4LIFE ticket is $10,000.

    79(3) If multiple winning Top Prize tickets are sold in Florida for the same CASH4LIFE 94drawing, the retailers selling such tickets will share the bonus commission. Each retailer selling a winning Top Prize ticket will receive a share of the bonus equal to the number of winning Top Prize tickets sold by that particular retailer divided by the total number of winning Top Prize tickets sold in Florida for that drawing.

    150(4) Florida Lottery retailers who sell a winning Second Prize 160CASH4LIFE 161ticket will receive a $2,000 bonus commission.

    193(6) Retailers whose Florida Lottery contracts are terminated or inactivated prior to the bonus commission award shall be paid the bonus commission earned provided said termination or inactivation was not due to noncompliance with Chapter 24, F230.231S232., 233Chapter 53, F236.237A238.239C240., 241or terms of their retailer contract.

    247(7) A bonus commission will be considered compensation to the retailer for Internal Revenue Service purposes.
